Anyone ever build one of these as a sloper? I've been mulling it over at my desk at work. Looks like a good candidate for PSS with the straight wings at mid fuse.

Are you prejudiced against overweight planes? Can't we all get along? The frontal view doesn't seem any worse than some other PSS planes.

"No fuse too fat". That's my motto. Looks like a cool plane! When will the molds be ready?

I like it!
My success with swept wing slopers has been poor.. Willy the Whale has enough wing to fly well.
